Ding Dang it's cold and snowy outside
How cold is it? Can you say double digits subzero over night. And lets not even talk wind chill. Going out to do chores and it felt like your eyeballs could freeze. It was too cold for Nikki our dog. She spent the better part of the day wrapped up in an afghan sleeping on the chair with only the tinest bit of her nose sticking out. She needed her winter coat on to go outside. It is amazing how fast that dog can find the perfect place to piddle when it is cold out. Snow has been falling since Sunday. We were able to stay home on Sunday and Monday but today we had to venture out. It took us 45 minutes to get the 15 miles to town and once in town it took us 25 minutes to go 3 miles. This was the traffic for the trip accross town. Here is what it looks like on the road to our house. Notice there are no houses. Lets see, bumper to bumper traffic, or so quiet and peaceful we can hear the snow fall. We will take the bad roads to hear the snow fall.
